Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a website like so: http://website.com/path/default.html

If I go to http://website.com I get the IIS 7 Welcome screen. If I go to http://website.com I would like to be redirected to http://website.com/path/default.html

How do I go about this in IIS 7.5?

With a 301 redirect using your language of choice?

Maybe it's not called a redirect. My website is located here: website.com/path/default.html , but when users go to website.com all they get is the IIS 7 welcome screen. I would like them to get the website.com/path/default.html instead. How do I do this in IIS 7 ?? –  user72128 Oct 20 '11 at 15:57
Dan was right. I had to go to IIS manager > Hostname of my server > Sites > Default Web Site > choose HTTP Redirect > check Redirect requests to this destination: website.com/path/default.html then Check Redirect all requests to exact destintation and check Only redirect requests to content in this directory. Now it works perfectly. –  user72128 Oct 20 '11 at 18:01
